We had two houses - sleeper in the shallows and day house in the deep. We did much better in the shallows. 4 of us brought our limit home of walleyes but were only able to catch 3 keeper saugers. Did the best in the morning on the shallows. Our alarm clock was the rattle reels, once one went off, time to get up and start fishing. There was an average to below average evening bite in the shallows. Day bite in the deep house didn't go too good - we maybe got 10 fish between 4 of us. We caught a total of 52 fish for the trip! It wasn't fast and furious but it was still fun just to be with friends and family.

There was one nice pike caught by a member in our group, the only pike caught matter of fact. Caught it on a tip-up right before dark. Was just getting ready to pull it up when it hit. See the pics below. It came in at right around 40 to 41 inches.

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.
